All-County Band Information

The following is what I know about All-County band. I will provide more details as I learn of them. For those attending the prom Saturday and encountering a scheduling conflict, please do not ask the all-county organizers to excuse you from the concert after making a commitment to rehearsals. We may or may not have a scheduling conflict, but if so, you'll need to make a choice. I hope everyone will consider auditioning for all-county. It should be a good experience.
